Time to schedule some R&R, Professional Development

Almost 40 percent of adults didn’t plan to use all of their vacation days in 2010, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. I suspect the same will hold true in 2011.

Research shows that simply anticipating time off significantly improves a person’s mood. I always like to have days scheduled throughout the year. I plan them early in January.

If you haven’t already done so, now is the perfect time to plan some days off. It’s time to register for the 2011 NFPW conference in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Omaha, Neb.

The conference is Sept. 8-10. A Nebraska pre-tour is scheduled Sept. 4-6. An Iowa post-tour is scheduled Sept. 11-13. Registration details are posted to the NFPW website.

Once you’re registered, you might want to save the dates for your affiliate meetings. And mark your calendar for Sept. 20-22, 2012, for the NFPW conference in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Don’t you feel better already?
